The Boot Inn

This shed is built in the tudor style..from genuine 16th/17th century oak with plaster infill..it has a real flagstone floor. I built it as I love unspoilt old pubs which are becoming hard to find nowadays. I brew all types of beer particualy Strong dark ale and barley wine so this is in a way a brewery tap to sample the odd 15 percent grog. It cost me ᆪ70 to build..yes ᆪ70...All the materials apart from the roof timbers are scrap that people were throwing out..Including the ancient oak beams..and some of the furniture. It is the length of a darts throw..love dart..and at a squeeze you can (and have) had 12 people in..it. I built this in 2005...long before the shed of the year was invented.

Just shows you what you can do...This was a dark and damp corner of the garden..from grabbing stuff friends didn't want it is now a really useful part of the garden. The cupboard and shelves were on a bonfire in the back field...the infill panels were in a derelict shed at a mates farm etc...have a look around see what you can find. i have 2 other sheds..please check them out if you like...CHEERS!!!!
